VIDEO: The science of dreaming

We love the SciShow (even though the presenter does talk real fast) This is another great explainer video which gives a concise and entertaining background on some of the science behind the mystery of dreaming.

Some of the topics the video covers include: why Freud was wrong, the discovery of REM (rapid eye movement) and why it’s also known as paradoxical sleep, how dreams give our emotions a narrative and some of the science behind lucid dreaming. Enjoy!
